New Interdisciplinary Science faculty member, Davida Smyth, will be heading up socially responsible scientific research on campus and with our community partners. To that end, the department has outfitted a new Biosafety Level 2 lab in the University Center with its very own genome sequencer as Davida’s research involves the investigation of antibiotic resistant bacteria and changing ecologies in the urban environment. Davida is a microbiologist and a Senior Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities (SENCER) Leadership Fellow (now Lang has two!). Her work and interests are intimately tied to the department’s focus on health, environment, and equity–planetary health.
